CNN's @oliverdarcy, last seen claiming the #TwitterFiles don't show govt trying to suppress the Hunter Biden story: @SpeakerMcCarthy "helped @TuckerCarlson try to rewrite history [of 1/6] by giving this surveillance footage, footage he denied to actual news organizations."
@oliverdarcy @SpeakerMcCarthy @TuckerCarlson Darcy: "Now, Tucker Carlson is back at his usual game of trying to, I, mean not even trying — lying to his audience about the events of that day."
Here's Darcy using CNN to circulate misinformation about the #TwitterFiles in December:

@jheil @rustyrockets Here's John Heilemann claiming in January the story about the Biden Admin trying to ban gas stoves is Republican fake news — even though the CPSC memorandum was literally titled "Proposing Ban on Gas Stoves"
@jheil @rustyrockets Here's Heilemann implausibly claiming Trump accounted for "73 percent" of online "misinformation"

Politico's @kyledcheney: "What the Capitol Police is most concerned about is a wide release of massive amounts of [1/6] footage because that would enable bad actors, including, for example, foreign intelligence services, to glean information about vulnerabilities in the Capitol."
@kyledcheney MSNBC's @JoyAnnReid: "Is [@SpeakerMcCarthy] deliberately trying to give these people crucial information that they would need to plan another attack and perhaps be more successful?"
@kyledcheney @JoyAnnReid @SpeakerMcCarthy WaPo's Milbank: Americans shouldn’t be able to see 1/6 footage at all

"This doesn't belong in the public domain"

Despite @mtaibbi's #TwitterFiles reporting — including how the FBI had a one-way conduit of communication built so they could tell Twitter what to censor — agency Director Wray just told Fox News: "We don't tell social media companies to censor anything."
@mtaibbi FBI's Wray on the FBI/CIA pre-2020 Election Day disinformation operation to convince social media companies the laptop story was fake: "I can’t speak to what former officials of the intelligence community may or may not have said."
Wray again refuses to deny the FBI had undercover assets in the 1/6 mob: “You should not read into my inability to answer a question because of my obligations as that is a clue or a hint in any way.”

@JacksonLeeTX18 Rep. @RashidaTlaib to student-loan forgiveness rally: "Movement people don’t go nowhere, right? They can change hands, this unhinged Supreme Court can make all these decisions, but we’re not going anywhere & we’re going to continue to speak that truth."
@JacksonLeeTX18 @RashidaTlaib Rep. @AyannaPressley: "I woke up this morning ... thinking about my own mother & the history of black Americans locked out of every major federal relief program ... denied the ability to build generational wealth b/c of policy violence, & so we borrow & default at higher rates"
